@Earlybride:  First take a deep breath, it’s scary but not necessarily bad.

Next, start learning all you can from her, look at this as an opportunity rather than a bad thing. This could be a way for you to move forward in your career and prove yourself even more (that is if being a merchandiser is a step forward from what you are doing).

Try and look at the positives as well as try and learn as much as you can from her while she’s still around so you are well equipped to help fill the void.

@KatNYC2011:  I couldn’t agree with you more.

Now is the time for you to start stepping up and learning absolutely as much as you can from her so that when she does leave, you are prepared for it. And who knows, with the additional responsibility, maybe you’ll get a pay raise and be recongized for pitching in exactly where it’s needed most.

in my core management team we are all critical personel (my fathers funeral was organized around my work schedule) but the fact is everyone is replacable and no one person is bigger than the company/the position

if you have notice get her to write down as much as she can about her systems, daily routines and general know how/what corners does she cut/insider info she uses and ask questions. yes at first it will be different and stressful getting things done but it shouldnt be like this for long – remember to speak up to your boss so he knows what you are doing to prepare for the changeover and speak up to ask for help/extra staff

goodluck!

@Earlybride:  Everyone can be replaced. Learn what you can, get promoted and get your money!

@eloping:  so true…..even the President is replacable – someone is always available to step up.
